We live in a world today where we have the power to be anything we want to be. Just think about that for a while. How amazing is that to know that you have the control and hold that power? This world is filled with opportunities, when one door closes another will open. If you’re feeling lost and hopeless, take a second and ask yourself what led you to this place in your life? Ask yourself where you want to be? Then I want you to take out a piece of paper and make list of things you have to do to get there. Don’t let anything get in the way of your goals. Block out all the negativity, and self-doubt. Tell yourself that you can do this, that you are going to do this, that everything will get better, and tell yourself that you are strong enough to pull through this. If there’s one thing I learned in my life is that it doesn’t stop, and it keeps going as do other people. Many of us spend a majority of our time taking care of others. We forget to take care of ourselves. We sacrifice what we want and need in order to meet someone else’s needs. It’s nice to make someone else happy, but we cannot forget ourselves. We cannot forget ourselves because if you don’t take care of yourself, who will? Once we let ourself go mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually, we are no good to anyone including ourselves. So take the time to work on your life, to do whatever it is that makes you happy, and think outside the box a little. We have the power to be something different in this world. So why be like everyone else?
